Ms. Word 2007: using TAB Stop

using Tab Stops (Tabs) is useful when we want to type a list or Table. we can arrange position for each text easily just using Tab.

Types of the Tabs

Button image Left Tab :text
Button image Center Tab text
Button image Right Tab text:
Button image A Decimal Tab stop aligns numbers around a decimal point. Independent of the number of digits, the decimal point will be in the same position.

10.7

Button image Bar Tab stop doesn’t position text. It inserts a vertical bar at the tab position.                            |

To Set Up the Tab Stops for typing a list/table:

e.g.:

Tony………………Adelaide |  $100.6

First, we need to define all stop positions

by choosing the type of tab stops (icon Tab alignment button-left of ruler) and klik on the ruler

then Typing up the text….and use TAB button to tab the text on the next position

Remember:

if we want to add DOT Leader between text

e.g.    Tony………………Adelaide

1. Highligh both of the texts

2. Open ‘Tabs dialog box’ (Home tab-Paragraph group-louncher arrow-‘Tab’ button)

3. Choose the ‘Tab Stop Position’: this is the end of the dot! and choose the type of the dot
